During this interactive, one-hour session, Alison will:

  • Clarify what coaching is and when to use it
  • Explore how to use a coaching approach to develop individuals and teams
  • Share tips on how to ‘pull’ energy from team members and get them to take ownership
  • Give you a chance to practise your coaching skills
  • Offer guidance on how to effectively use the GROW model of coaching

This workshop-style session is relevant to all line managers, regardless of whether you manage or supervise one, or many people.

Your Speaker

Alison Craig has dedicated her career to helping leaders get the best out of themselves and from others. After 26 years at the John Lewis Partnership, where she achieved high levels of success operationally before specialising in people development, Alison founded her own coaching company to support small companies and large enterprises across multiple sectors with their leadership programmes.

She says: “I first learnt about coaching back in 1995, as a line manager at John Lewis.  Knowing how to coach well radically changed the way I led and developed my team.  It also made my life as a manager much less stressful!”

Alison’s third and final session in this leadership series will take place on Thursday 22 September.
